We have been migrated to the new data center as well with the result that performance has gone down. Before the migration the service was good, absolutely no problems in over three years. It's a real shame they have gone down hill, we'll be leaving as soon as is practicable.

Spry is terrible. I was with them 4 years and when the migrated they broke my VPS because the kernel was no longer compatible with some extension for Perl — of course, they blamed me and it never got fixed so I jumped ship and couldn't be happier. Don't even consider SPRY if you want decent support! They are dolts.. Lyle is great, but the rest are idiots that only know how to reboot thinking that will solve your problems. Uptime after migration was also atrocious.. was down for days at a time. My advice is run away.

I've been a customer with Spry for about 6 years and until about a year ago they were OK. Recently, after a number of outages and other problems, I decided to shift my email hosting from a Spry server to a managed Rackspace solution. Our email is mission critical, and after a 2 day outage with no email it was time to call "time out". Their customer relations truly suck! They provide no affirmative feedback. They've gotten worse and I've gone from raving about them to loathing the company. I had another web site that went down for 1 week after they migrated to a new data center, again they seemed not to care less about the customer. My advice, avoid Spry like the plague!

On May 25, 2010 Spry migrated my account to a "new" data center. My site has been down as much as up since then. I've had a support ticket open since then and they are either unwilling or incapable of resolving the problem.

I've tried emailing, calling and hand no progress on the issue. They say they are "researching" the issue. I don't want a term papar on crappy service I just want it fixed. I suspect the new data center in in the basement of their mom's house with a Dial-up modem for their backbone connection.

The "new" data center sucks. I'm outta here.
